Hi! What is the module liblo? I tried running it, and it said no module named liblo. Help?

Hey! Sorry I didn't respond; I didn't notice your question until now. You can find liblo here. I'm pretty sure that I installed it through homebrew, though, just because it's easier and I'm on a Mac. liblo is a C library for sending and receiving OSC messages.
